That IS a nice “feel good” story. Wonder what would have happened if the business owner had NOT known about the protective order. Wish the story had included info as to whether the “up to no good” fellow was armed or not.
And, yeah, I understand that the protective order is in effect regardless of firearm status of the “offender” but would have been nice to mention this in the story; more so as another fact of reference for the “gun debate” going on.
Otherwise, the statistic for firearms use to prevent a crime before it happens, which is almost impossible to track, potentially suffers another lost “incident” in the numbers.
